Walk out onto the sand dunes and you can enjoy the carpet of wild flowers that nestles on the dunes against a grey lichen backdrop. Or wander in the woodland and smell the fresh scent of pine needles, whilst searching out rare pinewood plants. The most northerly estuary on Scotland's east coast, Loch Fleet National Nature Reserve is a large tidal basin surrounded by dunes, saltmarsh and pine woods. Whatever the season, this wide range of habitats supports a huge variety of wildlife- making it a great place to visit at any time of the year. Fast-flowing currents empty the tidal basin on every tide, leaving sands exposed. Here, you can spot seals and their pups hauled out on the banks and waders feeding in the shallow waters.
